Diversity lies in the eyes of the beholder.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe diversity lies in the eyes of the beholder, have come to a realisation.

This after they realised that Singapore’s three Chinese prime ministers have managed to represent all races in Singapore over the past 52 years of nationhood without any feelings of being hiatus-triggered.

One Singaporean, Tng Lang, said: “If you look at Lee Kuan Yew, Goh Chok Tong and Lee Hsien Loong, who do you see?”

“If you say you see three Chinese men, then you must be the racist one.”

“Because if you look at them closely, you can see that they are Chinese, Malay, Indian and Others. Diversity lies in the eyes of the beholder. Don’t be fooled by the superficial exteriors.”

“When you see these three men, you see the full spectrum of races visible to the human eye.”

Other locals then questioned why this rationale cannot be transferred to the elected presidency.

Another local, Ma Lai Ren, said: “When you look at Ong Teng Cheong, who do you see? If you see any race other than Chinese, then you must be racist because he is clearly Chinese.”

“When you look at SR Nathan, who do you see? If you say Indian, then you must be correct.”

“No, don’t argue.”

“You are wrong.”
